This used to be my favourite bar in Lisbon (for Ginjinha) - until now! They are now defrauding their customers by selling incorrect measures. They sell their drinks (mainly Ginjinha local liqueur) in 5 cl and 3 cl measures (a "Grand" and a "Pequeno"). The Grand is currently 1.40 euro. During the day they usually sell the Grand (5 cl)...

We find this tiny, traditional and nice place in Lisbon. Pass by Rossio's ginjinha houses and try an Eduardino because you already must know is the best ginjinha in town. The Eduardino is a liqueur made with herbs and tastes like candies. It's just perfect after your dinner. Cheap shots as well. We loved it...and we bought a tiny bottle... More

Really liked this place. Great old shop, really nice buzz about it with people drinking outside, a friendly person pouring the drinks and the tastiest Ginja we've tried- smooth and balanced. Good central location too.

Just up the street from the famous A Ginjinha is this little spot which is a bit more old school Portuguese. Don't miss the original but save one of your Ginjinhas for here. You know you will have one every day while in Lisbon.

The most tradicional place to try Ginja, the first place to sell it in Lisbon. I love the shot with the fruits inside.

This little shop sells only 2 drinks: Ginja and their own house liqueur. Both are good, definitely after your dinner on the way to your hotel.

We tried the infamous cherry liquor, and I have to say that I didn’t care for it much. More like cherry cough syrup. But others seem to like it, so I think it’s all a matter of preference. I like the aspect that you can pay a small amount and then just get a sample of it.

A little hard to find as building is currently under restoration. Excellent Ginjinha with cherries in the shot. A small little place that is worth finding for the Ginjinha.

One of the most tasty ginja. This is the one e of the two oldest spots, where you can taste it. There working the fourth generation of family. Price is 1,40 EUR. Small place, just drink and go. Better come at evening, when weather become colder and wind stronger.

Neighbourhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
